Top Wild News

  • Wild's Ryan Hartman: Finally warming up

    Hartman scored the game-winning goal Saturday in a 3-1, home-ice victory over Chicago.

    Hartman won the puck from Chicago defender Connor Murphy near the middle of the ice and scored on a breakaway with 1:11 left in the third period. His scoring hasn't come close to last season's 65-point revelation, but he does have nine points (four goals, five assists) on 24 shots in his last nine games. Overall, Hartman has 13 goals and 19 assists in 51 games.

  • Wild's Filip Gustavsson: Wins in close contest

    Gustavsson made 22 saves Saturday in a 3-1 win over Chicago.

    Don't assume this was an easy night -- the game was knotted 1-1 until the 18:49 mark of the third period. Lukas Reichel, scored from the right face-off circle on a 2-on-1, was the only Hawk to beat Gustavsson. The Swede is now 19-9-5 with two straight wins.

  • Wild's John Klingberg: Unlikely to play Monday

    Klingberg (upper body) isn't likely to play Monday versus Seattle, per Michael Russo of The Athletic.

    The plan is for Klingberg to skate Monday, so he's getting closer to returning. He has nine goals and 28 points in 59 contests this season. Klingberg has missed Minnesota's last two contests, including Saturday's 3-1 victory over Chicago.

  • Wild's Filip Gustavsson: Gets start Saturday

    Gustavsson will guard the home crease versus Chicago on Saturday, Dane Mizutani of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Gustavsson was sensational Tuesday, as he turned aside 47 shots in a 2-1 overtime win over New Jersey. Gustavsson has been a top-three goaltender this season, and rebounded nicely Tuesday after a couple of tough starts in which he gave up nine goals on 60 shots. Gustavsson is 18-9-5 with a 2.04 GAA and .932 save percentage this season. He faces the Blackhawks, who are the lowest-scoring team in the NHL in 2022-23.

  • Wild's Joel Eriksson Ek: Two helpers in shootout loss

    Eriksson Ek collected two assists in Thursday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Flyers.

    He helped set up Matthew Boldy for both of his tallies on the night. The center has benefitted from Boldy's recent hot streak, and over the last six games Eriksson Ek has a goal and seven points as he adds to the career-best 54 points he's amassed this season.

  • Wild's Matthew Boldy: Lights lamp twice in shootout loss

    Boldy scored two goals in Thursday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Flyers.

    He got a chance to extend the shootout with the Wild's final attempt, but Carter Hart got a piece of his quick snapshot. Boldy is one of the hottest players in the NHL right now as Minnesota jockeys for the top spot in the Central Division -- he's found the back of the net six times in the last three games, and over the course of his seven-game point streak he's piled up eight goals and 12 points.

  • Wild's Marc-Andre Fleury: Falls to Philly in shootout

    Fleury stopped 30 shots in regulation and overtime and two of three shootout attempts in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Flyers.

    The Wild took 3-2 and 4-3 leads in the second and third periods, but Fleury coughed up a tying goal less than two minutes later each time. The veteran netminder has allowed 12 goals over his last three starts but still hasn't taken a regulation loss since Feb. 15, going 7-0-1 over that stretch with a 2.34 GAA and .929 save percentage.

  • Wild's Marc-Andre Fleury: Starting Thursday

    Fleury will patrol the visiting crease in Philadelphia on Thursday, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Fleury has been great of late, winning each of his last seven starts. The netminder is 23-13-3 with a 2.83 GAA and .908 save percentage. Fleury is 1-0-0 against the Flyers this season, stopping 28 shots in a 3-2 win Jan. 26.

  • Wild's Kirill Kaprizov: Still not skating

    Coach Dean Evason said on Thursday that Kaprizov (lower body) has yet to return to the ice, Wild reporter Kevin Falness reports.

    Kaprizov was injured March 8 and was expected to be out 3-4 weeks. Evason said that "it will be a while" so It's beginning to look that the three-week mark will come and go without Kaprizov back in action. The Wild winger has 39 goals and 74 points in 65 games, but it is possible that he may not return in the regular season. Stay tuned.

  • Wild's Filip Gustavsson: Earns win by making 47 saves

    Gustavsson saved 47 of 48 shots in a 2-1 overtime victory over New Jersey on Tuesday.

    That's the most saves Gustavsson has made in a single game in 2022-23. The 24-year-old saw his shutout bid end midway through the third period, but he still emerged from the busy night with a win. That victory ended a rough stretch of three outings in which he posted a 0-1-2 record, 2.88 GAA and .895 save percentage. Gustavsson's 18-9-5 with a 2.04 GAA and a .932 save percentage in 33 appearances this season.

  • Wild's Mason Shaw: Stays hot Tuesday

    Shaw provided a goal in Minnesota's 2-1 overtime victory over New Jersey on Tuesday.

    Shaw has seven goals and 17 points in 54 appearances in 2022-23. He entered the contest averaging just 11:25 of ice time in 2022-23 and logged 12:26 on Tuesday. As long as Shaw's playing in a bottom-six role, he's unlikely to be a consistent offensive contributor, but the 24-year-old is hot at the moment, recording three goals and six points over his last seven outings.
